Achieving a black belt involves a lot of hard work, focus, and dedication. Several stars in Hollywood have put in the necessary time and energy to obtain the rank -- and some may surprise you.

Sarah Michelle Gellar has studied kickboxing, boxing, and gymnastics and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Her experience came in handy while she filmed the popular cult TV series "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" from 1997 to 2003. Of course, a stunt double did most of the work.

Gellar has also appeared in the films "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "The Grudge" and "Cruel Intentions." She most recentl...

Madonna's Beverly Hills mansion for sale
Madonna has listed the Beverly Hills estate she once shared with ex-husband Guy Ritchie for a reported $28 million. The "pocket listing" is for private buyers who qualify for homes in that price range. We're guessing not a lot of people meet the requirements for purchase.

The enormous estate features a tennis court, swimming pool and a British-style pub and games room. It looks absolutely amazing in these aerial shots.

The pop star recently released her new album, "MDNA," and her latest single "Girl Gone Wild" was slapped with a viewing age restriction on YouTube.

Robert Downey Jr. isn't a slave to fashion. He attended the "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" Rome photocall wearing a blue suit with an unusual pair of sneakers. It looked as though he dipped the tips of his white shoes into blue paint.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The White Ribbon,' & More

12/28/2009 9:52am EST
Last Monday I caught "Sherlock Holmes" in the theater, which turned out to be a very entertaining movie. Guy Ritchie presents a fresh take on Sherlock Holmes, portraying him as more of a cocky savant than a refined gentleman, but with Robert Downey Jr. playing Holmes, it works like a charm.

Jude Law plays a great Watson to Downey's Holmes, as a level headed roommate who makes the detective seem like an eccentric shut-in. Stylistically the film recreates Victorian England quite well, using night scenes and CGI to craft a dirty, crime plagued London.

The story is thoroughly explained...
